Overpriced for what it was

Paid $75 for what was a $50 course … COVID Golf. Nice straight forward course. Greens In Good shape. Fairways not in good shape. Lots of shenanigans going with other players hitting into you, very slow play and playing in your fairway… a lot. But such is golf. Will come back if price is reasonable in the future.

South needs help

First time playing South Course. We found it difficult to get around and were unsure several times where to go to find the next tee. Greens were in rough shape. Course layout was awkward.

Fun course but completely overbooked

Enjoyed playing the course but didn’t enjoy waiting 5-10 minutes on the majority of the holes. Sometimes two groups were backed up waiting for the tee box. It was impossible to get a rhythm. Played on a Wednesday around 1015.

Great fun and good round!

Fairways on the south are a bit sparse, but greens were in pretty good shape. Pace was awesome as there was no one in front or behind us. Lots of fun!! Price was right.

Barren landscape

The South course ground was hard and bereft of grass. Not much more to say then I would never play there again.

Good value for a decent course

Decent course for the money, south course is more open and forgiving but fairways aren’t maintained the best; Lots of dead grass and dirt patches on the fairways. Overall a fun course to play but just not the nicest.

Bad fairways

Fairways were some of the worst I’ve seen. Huge dirt patches everywhere and a pretty rude starter. Should be $10 for the round for what you get. Disappointed.

Admiral Baker is a good value.

We had fun n our round. We were partnered with two slow players and it was stressful to stay on pace. Course was fun and challenging.

Great value for the cost!

We played the South Course and it was in good condition. The course is perfect for the average golfer with just enough length and challenge to make it fun. Greens were in great shape. There is a little sand trap chipping area to practice on just before playing.
